Keeping pet cats indoors would save millions of native animals and billions of dollars. So what's stopping us? (www.abc.net.au)

Broader adoption of keeping cats safe at home would have large benefits for cat welfare, human health, local wildlife and even the economy. So, should cat owners be required to keep their pets contained to their property?...

awwwyissss,

There’s a quote in the body of the post that ends with

So, should cat owners be required to keep their pets contained to their property?

awwwyissss,

As the other commenter said, “about a dozen prostitutes”

awwwyissss,

I think this is too nuanced for lemmy.ml to handle, they prefer black and white

awwwyissss,

Destroying these interceptors and the radars might provide some opportunities for Storm Shadows and other cruise missiles.

awwwyissss,

I’m reading people directly trying to influence opinion to not vote for Biden by any means necessary while willfully and actively avoiding any consequences to a trump win

Exactly, Kremlin shills and trolls using Israel’s genocide as a wedge issue to get their asset into the White House again so he cuts support for Ukraine and pulls out of NATO.

awwwyissss,

paying “users”

And using LLMs, then eventually getting useful idiots involved as well.

awwwyissss,

No, it’s because you’re ignorant.

awwwyissss,

Same. If we want Lemmy and the Fediverse to succeed we all need to do our part to stop propaganda. They spend money to spread misinformation, but there’s no budget for fighting it… just us.

awwwyissss,

The fact that other countries are absolutely trying to influence the US election by criticizing Biden, especially the Kremlin.

awwwyissss,

I don’t think they’re trying to lose. I think they’re overrun by corporate influence as badly as the Republicans, and have no strong leadership to coordinate and guide them against a relatively coordinated right wing with foreign support.

awwwyissss,

Are you implying there are Israeli government shills on social media using this as a wedge issue? Seems unlikely to me.

awwwyissss,

People shouldn’t have children if they can’t provide for them. The earth is already overpopulated which is driving global climate change and the 6th mass extinction of life on Earth.

awwwyissss,

I don’t know what the figure is today, but I learned a while ago that 25% of all healthcare spending in the US is on paperwork. And the US spends a LOT on healthcare.

awwwyissss,

Because it’s more convenient for them to ignore it, and they’re generally close-minded.

awwwyissss,

Another commenter mentioned she refuses to denounce her father’s word there, and pulled funding from a sports org because one of the players had brought up the issue.

awwwyissss,

The country isn’t the problem, it’s the government. Throwing all the people in with their authoritarian government will drive them into the CCPs arms because they have no other choice.

awwwyissss,

Great, so now Chinese people who were uncertain will accept the CCP’s propaganda saying that you’re their enemy.

Instead of having allies to fight the CCP, you give them followers.

awwwyissss,

Why is lemmy.zip still federated with Hexbear??

awwwyissss,

Some concrete examples of instances which we would defederate: An instance which is focused on creating spam in the network

Why doesn’t spamming authoritarian propaganda count? Better to have corporate ads than dictators’ lies.

awwwyissss,

It’s not normal content, it’s propaganda. Whether that’s technically spam or not, it’s disinformation and intentionally corrosive content designed to spread division and hate.

It’s not about me filtering out their propaganda and creating an echochamber. It’s about resisting propaganda from dictators, and about playing a part in the Fediverse to help it survive and replace corporate social media.

People checking out Lemmy see Hexbear comments and go back to Reddit or wherever they came from. There are constant threads asking “how can I block a whole instance”.

awwwyissss,

Exactly. The responses I’m getting here are ignoring what I’m saying and acting like they’re just people with opinions I don’t like.

awwwyissss,

I’m tolerant of different opinions, authoritarian propaganda isn’t a different opinion, it’s large scale coordinated misinformation. In this case coming from a government that has a long history of brutally killing people with “the wrong opinion”.

awwwyissss,

Are you paid for all these brand posts or what?
